Volvo At The Sunday Times National Small Business Week Show

Stand C31, Earls Court 2, London, 28-30 April 2003

With further tax changes coming into effect this April, corporate drivers and Fleet Managers visiting the inaugural Sunday Times Small Business Week Show can speak to Volvo representatives to explore the best options for their company’s fleet requirements, whatever its size.

For instance, Volvo will be able to provide expert advice and detailed information on its wide range of fleet leasing and contract hire schemes, and in some cases generate instant quotes.

In addition, Volvo can discuss the personal finance options available for individual corporate drivers who may be considering whether to remain within a company car scheme or opt out.

Ian Rendle, Volvo Corporate Sales Manager says: "Business drivers and Fleet Managers from companies of all sizes are extremely important to Volvo and year on year we are gaining a greater share of the corporate sales market. We decided to support this new event as we can offer a great service and fleet advice to smaller businesses. I believe that our product range has never been stronger and offers a diversity of models that will appeal financially to both Fleet Managers and the individual business driver. With the recent S80 facelift, the latest S40 and V40 range, C70 convertible, S60 compact executive saloon and award-winning V70 estate, plus the superb new addition of the XC90, there really is something for everyone."

Volvo’s latest range has never been so stylish and desirable. For instance, following style, safety and specification improvements last year, Volvo’s ‘new-look’ S40 and V40 ranges have experienced a resurgence in popularity, while this year Volvo has increased their appeal to the business and fleet sectors even further by reducing emissions and improving fuel economy on its range of engines. Emissions and fuel economy have improved for the 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 and 2.0T petrol engines, with emissions on the 163bhp 2.0T reducing by nearly 5% from 198g/km to 189g/km. This currently reduces a driver’s tax liability from 21% of list price to 19%.
